Come learn about a unique vertical farming approach

October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

Please join the Farm-to-Table community, including chefs, produce growers and others to learn about Gigrow, an innovative vertical farming method.

What Makes Gigrow Exciting?

It is an efficient indoor growing system that enables year-round production of certified organic crops without the use of pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, leaving almost no wastewater and a near-zero carbon footprint. Its high productivity and simplicity of operation makes you able to reduce cost without sacrificing quality year-round. It produces tasty, delicious fresh lettuces such as kale and baby bok choy, herbs, edible flowers, peppers, and even CBD and other incredibly fresh niche crops in a controlled environment, no hail, no rain, and no surprises. Secure your production, harvest when vegetables are needed.

Come and see why this is the future of agriculture and how it will increase productivity and create unique products. Gigrow is based in Montreal and was first introduced in Vermont by the Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce’s Vermont-Québec Enterprise Initiative.
Please join us for an introduction to year-round vertical farming and just-in-time fresh greens and herbs.

Time: 10:00 – 11:30 am
